    Yeah that background check was extensive. I had to call and clarify some questions I had and I don't think the girl understood me at all. Hopefully that doesn't mess me up with school...

    Background check completed and paid for. All I have to do is complete the drug screen by June 19 and I'll do it next Thursday. All that will be needed is the Net Id...lol

    Yeah I was thinking that after this holiday we would have the NetID. I'm getting anxious about not having it. I called Financial Aid today wondering if I could get the ball rolling on getting loans without the NetID number (of course I had to leave a message). It'll suck to have to buy the books and everything we need out of pocket to have it before school starts...

    I, too, start the DNP program in August. I'm in the dual Acute care/Family track. I'm getting really nervous as August approaches. 2BlessedRN, I work at Methodist University as well, but in the MICU. I have been a nurse for 3.5 years, but only been at Methodist for a year and a half. As far as my stats, other than being a nurse for 3 and a half years, I was a critical care respiratory therapist for two years before going to nursing school. I, too, had great recommendations and a 3.5 GPA. I'm also certified as a CCRN.

    I was thinking the same thing, but the holiday has pass and they still haven't giving us an update on what is taking so long. I may not get anything until after graduation.

    Hello theonly321, I work nights on 4 east. It's good to see I'll know some people. I also met someone from 7 east who would be starting in August for acute care. It's also a 2nd year student on the same floor. Theonly321 how are you doing your work schedule? At first I was thinking PRN but I may try part time.

    I will be working full time days (hopefully! Working nights now) till December. I plan to reevaluate the situation at that time. Ideally, I'd like to go PRN, as I have another job that I'm starting mid June that will allow me to work from home reading video capsule endoscopy results for GI specialists. However, I'll just have to see how it all works out. Being in the dual program, I think it's going to be very difficult to maintain full time work status throughout the program, at least that's what I was told by the interview committee. I'm glad to be meeting a few people already. I don't really know anyone else entering any of the programs, except for one person starting the CRNA program in June.

    I think I'll be doing the same thing by going prn in January. I have a friend in the program now and she's had clinic Friday day and works Friday night. There's no way I'm going to do that. I don't know how people worked full time with the dual program and maintained the grade point average that you have to keep. Too stressful for me!

    Yeah, I did similar stuff during my RN program. Worked 7p till 7a as an RT and then went straight from work to class. I don't plan on doing anything like that again. I also know someone in the dual program and he worked full time at the MED the entire first year. So, it can be done. I just don't want to do it.
